Obama’s Onion Soup Recipe

I have my favorites. Frequent readers here know who I read and link the most.

American Digest, written by Gerard Vanderluen is the best of the best. Today he writes that Obama is the onion from Peer Gynt.

When you peel off all his layers of signifying and symbolizing, of blathering and bamboozling, Obama is — it must be said — simply lacking in the elemental qualities of manliness necessary for the Chief Executive of the United States of America. Obama is like the onion in Peer Gynt. Once you strip off the layers there’s nothing in the center.

Nothing. Vapor. Oblivion. Anti-matter. Sheer emptiness that might rival the rim of deep space.

What is essential to me when I think about who deserves my vote is whether or not the person for whom I’m voting has the right stuff to lead this country. Right up at the top of that list for me is manliness. And by that I do not mean a quality exclusive to men. Rather I mean the old-fashioned values of courage and the ability to do the right thing, the strong thing, under pressure – regardless of the consequences. Those who do not know what I mean by “manliness” by now will never know it, but by way of example I’ll cite the most recent President to possess it, George Bush.

The manliness of Bush is, regardless of the perverted souls who look upon him as the source of evil in the world, really not open to question. Some would say that it is, perhaps, too much with him, that he should have been a more subtle player in the fields of power politics. That’s for history to decide in the long term. The short history is that nobody has attacked America on its home soil since September 11. This is not an accident. This is because there was, in the minds and hearts of our many enemies, no doubt as to what might happen to them and their countries if such an attack had come. No doubt. None. Niente. Nada. Zero. Zip. The only question was whether the Bush response would be in the form of an airborne division or a small, man-made sun being brought to life about 5,000 feet above their capitol city. This is not a bad question for our enemies to have in mind. The question itself keeps the terrible answer at bay.

The leftards sneer about the Crazy Cowboy, but let’s briefly review. Bush kept us safe and salvaged our economy without goosing any interns. Despite the help he has spread around the world, the world still hates him and everything he stands for. He is a brave man to face down these weasels, all day, every day. Does Obama have the backbone to do the same?

But a wider world awaits the next President; a world that can kill 3,000 Americans at their place of work in a single morning. A world that wants to see, more than anything, the destruction of American hegemony so that their dreams of conquest can go forward unabated.

After thousands of years of crawling up from the swamp of totalitarianism we can see, at last, in the distance a world where this ancient nightmare is removed from the world. But we cannot get there if America does not stand.

Again. The world cannot rid itself of the terror of totalitarianism if America does not stand.

For that to happen we need to have a leader — man or woman — who possesses real, demonstrated courage. For that to become true we need to have a leader who has — man or woman — real manliness.

Obama is intelligent, charming, good-looking, stylish, well-educated and slick. He’s everything that other people who value such surfaces look for… not in a leader, but in an icon. And that’s what they’re buying by buying Obama, an icon. A glowing plastic post-modern Jesus for the dashboard of their Prius. They know, as we all know by now, that he can talk the talk. He just can’t walk the walk. He’s soft talk and no stick.

I keep coming back to the one indisputable fact first spoken in Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech: “There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you … in places where winning means survival and defeat means death.”

One of those places where defeat means death is in the Oval Office on a very bad day.

Just to be clear, I’m not saying Obama is not a man. He’s just not man enough for the job.

One reason the leftards hate Gov. Palin so much, is that she’s right and they know it.

Obama’s election to the Presidency is a recipe for disaster. And no crying over a pile of rotten onions will save America from the onslaught that awaits.
